Study on the Flow of Scientific Information in Philippine Population Planning

Code:    Proj-11
Date:    05/01/1975 - 10/01/1975
Duration: 6 Months

The foundation implemented a research study on the technical information needs & uses of population professionals. This project (1) identified the "sources" and "end-user" of scientific information on population planning; (2) drew up a profile of these end-users to determine their levels of research utilization, their information-seeking patterns, and the relationship between information handling patterns and job performance; and (3) determined the flow of scientific information from the "producers" to the "users" and vice versa.
